Leonard Nimoy lung-disease

Leonard Nimoy lung-disease. On Wednesday, Leonard Nimoy addressed rumors regarding his health, after being seen in a wheelchair at a New York airport, earlier this week.

According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary (PULL-mun-ary) disease, is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. “Progressive” means the disease gets worse over time.

COPD can cause coughing that produces large amounts of mucus (a slimy substance), wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms.

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of COPD. Most people who have COPD smoke or used to smoke. Long-term exposure to other lung irritants—such as air pollution, chemical fumes, or dust—also may contribute to COPD.

Since retiring from convention appearances in 2011, Nimoy appeared in an Audi commercial with Zachary Quinto, Star Trek Into Darkness, as Spock (Prime), and gave the convocation speech to BU graduates, in 2012.

We here at TrekNews.net wish Mr. Nimoy all the best. LLAP, sir.

    for one of the humans who have made a lasting, positive impression- powdered elecampane root and comfrey rhizome decoction for lung maladies… pass it on
    my grandfather went at 82, but he was an industrial man

  2. My deepest concerns and prayers go out to Mr. Nimoy who has been a source of strength when I was dealing with first my fathers passing with Cancer and my mothers, just 1year and a half ago. It is not kind and can hurt you in many ways, to point that you ask why?? Myself I have prostrate cancer. This painful blessing has been with me since 1999, when I was diagnosed with it. So I say to Leonard, that if anyone has the power of will…it is you. So don’t let this thing bring u down. GOD bless…and yes, LIVE LONG and PROSPER.
